Late Locatelli strike hands Juventus win over Torino.
Manuel Locatelli struck late to earn Juventus a 1-0 win over Torino in the Turin derby on Saturday, as the Old Lady stretched their winning run to four games in all competitions and kept a Serie A clean sheet for the first time in seven months.
The Italy international fired a shot in off the post with four minutes remaining, his second consecutive league goal, as Juve rose to eighth place with 11 points, three ahead of their 11th-placed rivals.
The Old Lady managed to stop a run of conceding goals, one match short of their unwanted record of 21 consecutive games.
Juventus should have been ahead a number of times in the opening minutes. Moise Kean shot wide within two minutes, before Weston McKennie blasted over from inside the area.
At the other end, Sasa Lukic missed a golden chance with a header, while Rolando Mandragora forced Wojciech Szczesny into a smart save from distance.
Juan Cuadrado almost put Juve ahead seven minutes after the break, but his header was saved at point-blank range by Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.
Juventus kept things tight defensively to end a run stretching back to March of 20 matches in a row conceding in Serie A.
